After a night off (though Jer & Bob were on Letterman), the band comes back and makes up for two bleak shows by getting back a taste of what they had at the Warlocks shows in Hampton. The First Set is an improvement but Jer comes back for the Second Set and flubs every single song save Scarlet.

First Set. Touch of Grey is average-to-flubby and skips the second bridge. Who knows why the hell they gave this one to the Music Never Stopped OST. Even though the levels are messed up at first on Minglewood, and Jer is missing, it was used for Weir Here (or maybe that 's WHY it was used?) - though bizarrely edited. The second measure of the first Jer solo is cut, then Brent's solo is completely cut along with the first few bars of Bobby's solo, and Jer's second solo is brought way down in the mix to emphasize Bobby's slide practice™. Friend of the Devil has some great Jer - the best of the run so far. He really runs with Mexicali, playing off of Brent. After three nights, they suddenly come alive for Help on the Way. Out of blueness comes one of the best Slipknot!s of '89 (the track boundary happens in the middle of Slipknot!). This was only the second Help>Slip>Franks in four years (there was one in Hampton the week before), and the last one in a First Set was 10-11-77. Leave 'em happy for intermission!

Second Set. The momentum lost, seems like they barely get through Foolish Heart, though Dewiminna regains some of the vibe of the 1st set, and then Scarlet is perhaps the best of Fall '89 (and sans a Fire). There's an interesting let's-see-what-happens wander between Truckin' and when the drummers take over, that turns into a pre-Space; so it's really Space>Drums>Space. Clearly it's Jer that's the weak link on China Doll. Bobby revives his skating rink lyric from the 70s on One More Saturday Night as a NJ Devils call-out. Skip the encore.

1st Set:  C+
2nd Set: D
Overall = 2 Stars

Highlights:
Help on the Way>Slipknot!>Franklin's Tower - one of the best sequences of the run, if not fall '89

Run:
11th   1½ stars [D+, D]
12th   1¼ stars [D-, D+]
13th   Letterman
15th   3 stars [C+, B-]
16th   3½ stars [B+, C]

SOURCES: Three SBDs sound about the same but the miller.25319 is AUD-patched with a couple missing bits. The hansokolow matrix has the ambience. Most of Minglewood is on Weir Here. Touch of Grey is on the Music Never Stopped Soundtrack.

Adam Katz was a fallen brother on this date. The reason it sent shockwaves through the scene was because the cops/security were the criminals and, to this day, got away with murder. Times change/times remain the same.

I did all the shows at Brendan Byrne in the fall of 89. 10-16-89 was my favorite of the run which is in my top three out of over 200 shows attended..The boys were on fire this fall and did not disappoint on this night. The Help>Slip>Franklins was fine tuned after being played in Hampton and Philly.The sound quality is spot on and all in all a well played show.I like the lone Scarlet into Truckin in the 2nd set.Yeah it's located in NJ but it's really New York..So always high energy!!!!!!!!!!Give it a whirl

This one of of my favorite shows from the 89' fall tour. Some people say I'm crazy but enjoyed it more then the warlock shows @ Hampton.The help slip franklin's gave me the chills.i was dancing so hard this kind little hippie chick came up to me and said"what is your name i never seen anyone cut the rug like that" To me it was spiritual like all the deads shows i been to . Remember.Keep the scene clean leave nothing but foot prints take nothing but memories !i at about 10 gooneybird 4 ways that i had in my freeze from the 87 tour yum yum
